Arguably the most problematic of all pest animals, roof rats can destroy grain supplies, spread disease, and damage the attics and rooftops of buildings. They often invade attics in the winter and spring to escape the cold or to nest and raise their young. Roof rats are strong animals that can damage the shingles, fascia board, soffits, and vents of the structures they enter. Once inside, they commonly destroy insulation, ductwork, wiring, and drywall with their urine, feces, and constant gnawing. Water damage can also become a problem at the entry point. How To Get Rid Of Rats In The Attic – Rats are one of the most problematic pest animals to deal with for those who have attic spaces, as they can squeeze through holes that are around the size of a quarter, while they are also prodigious breeders. They can successfully mate throughout the year, meaning that if you have rats in the attic, then there is a good possibility that they will have a nest of baby rats that you will need to deal with as well. Because of the diseases they can carry, you should also check up on the equipment that you will need to safely trap the rats without any risk to your health.
Squirrels love to live in attics. They also love to chew, and will chew on houses or wires, ducts, pipes once inside an attic. People don’t like the noises of squirrels running about above the ceiling or in the eaves, but it’s really the chewing that’s a problem. If squirrels chew on electrical wires in an attic, it can create a real potential fire hazard. Squirrels also bring in nesting material and leave urine and feces in an attic. If you have squirrels in your attic, the total cost will probably run between $250 – $500 to remove all the squirrels and seal the entry holes shut. This cost will vary a great deal, depending on how many repairs are needed, what part of the country you live in, how many squirrels are in the attic, how many service trips are necessary, if you need cleanup, etc.
Since they tunnel so close to ground surfaces, moles often leave behind unsightly mounds of upturned dirt and kill grass and other plants when they burrow into the ground. As infestations of moles grow, they are capable of more destruction and can totally ruin otherwise aesthetically pleasing fields, as well as destroy crop yields for farmers. Additionally, the mammals inhabit sports fields, rendering them unusable. Employing mole control methods can be tedious and expensive. Moles can be very destructive to yards and need to be dealt with. There are measures you can take to get rid of them. The good news is moles don’t build colonies so you should only have to deal with 1 or 2 moles. When you’re beginning your efforts, you’ll want to make sure the mole tunnels are still active. Cover up the holes and wait a few days. If the holes are uncovered, you’ve got an active mole tunnel. Here are some tips for dealing with your mole problem.
